Eating Cooking Loving

Yesterday ended up being a lot more than just tomatoes.

It was roasted chicken with leeks and fingerling potatoes, zucchini fritters with feta, and lemon and tzatziki sauce, roasted tomatoes and garlic, and an apricot tart with cream.
It was babysitting for our friends 2 year old twins, and watching dolphin movies.
It was sitting in our trailer in the back yard after dark, playing cards and drinking manhattans.
It was another long and excellent day.

Today, I am canning MORE tomato sauce, and making stock with the chicken bones from last night.
Luckily for me, there was lots of chicken left over. I got to make the most perfect lunch of all time because of it! I recommend that you go home and roast a chicken in a dutch oven with a splash of water, some butter, 2 leeks and a couple handfuls of fingerling potatoes (delicious dinner!), and then tomorrow you can have the best lunch eva too!

Zippy Chicken Salad

2 cups pulled chicken meat
4 small fingerling potatoes, cooked then chilled
1/4 cup tzatziki sauce
4 sprigs of parsley, chopped
3 tablespoons french feta

Crumble potatoes and feta over the chicken. Sprinkle parsley on top, and stir in the sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. This shit is good. Share it with the ones you love (I did not share any).

If you also want to make zucchini fritters, you might want to experiment with Martha Stewart's recipe. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

PS Sorry for the crappy photo of the apricot tart I made last night. It was so easy to make that I forgot to treat it with respect and photograph it carefully! Apricots. Sugar. Salt. Put it in a tart crust. Bake it. Eat it.

Looks good to me...Here apricots are not available locally after July, so to see this makes me nuts for a pie like that...and the chicken sounds good too!
